Dietary Manager for Deer Valley Senior Living

DAVID YINGST, MAINTENANCE DIRECTOR

David signed on to work for Deer Valley Senior Living because he sees tremendous opportunity to be part of a new senior living community devoted to honoring and enriching the lives of the Valley seniors. David finds working with seniors especially rewarding and feels great satisfaction when he is able to do something to enrich their lives.

David has more than eight years of experience working in senior living. His favorite part is listening to the stories told by his residents. The stories shared of their life experiences are not only interesting but emotional and touching.

David has a few favorite hobbies. Living in the Valley of the Sun, David takes full advantage of being out on the golf course. When he is not golfing, he is four wheeling, exploring new desert trails or soaking up sun by the pool side.

SANDRA O'CONNELL, ADMINISTRATOR

Sandra comes to Deer Valley Senior Living after having spent over 10 years as a Business Office Manager in Long Term Care/Skilled Nursing communities. Knowing that there had to be more to offer our aging population, she jumped at the opportunity to become a part of our community and join us in our mission of "creating joy, independence, and wellness" for our residents.

Originally from Massachusetts, Sandra and her husband moved to Arizona in June 2015 to be closer to her husband's family. In her spare time, Sandra enjoys baking, reading, and entertaining. Sandra has one son, Daniel, who still lives in Massachusetts.
